Public Release: 15-Feb-2004
Mice cloned from olfactory cells
Researchers have successfully cloned a mouse using mature olfactory neurons as the genetic donor. The scientists credit the idea for the experiments to Woody Allen whose classic comedy, Sleeper, depicted scientists who try to clone a dead dictator from his nose.

It's Nonsensical Sunday!

Got this idea from the reactions to what I thought was a perfectly natural comment:

"You'll find that vampires are usually the reason behind why the Catholic Church does things."

- so I thought that I'd open up the floor to others. Statements must be:

1) Something said by you, or heard in your presence;
2) Amusingly nonsensical out of context; and
3) Not be overtly or covertly political.

Have at it.
